Class Details

Coevolution, defined as reciprocal adaptation between species, is central to understanding biological phenomena ranging from global patterns of biodiversity to the molecular mechanisms of host-parasite evolution. The focus of this tutorial will be on coevolution as a paradigm for integrating across scales of biological organization. Topics will include adaptive radiation, evolutionary dynamics and conservation, molecular coevolution of human disease (e.g., HIV) and evolution of sex mediated by a sperm-egg arms-race.
